Happy Homes for Every Bunny!
Jeannie is nursing her little growing body with good formula. She sticks her whole face into the milk so she gets stuff all over her. Watching her clean up after her meal is just a hoot! After a good bath, she always looks for a warm hand to cozy up in.At one point I was sitting on the floor cross-legged and wouldn't you know, she ran right up my pant leg! We had the camera handy and couldn't resist snapping a few photos for the blog.
others are stubbornly resisting, going so far as to hide their faces ...
... poor little things, such unfamiliar surroundings, the sounds, the smells, and the milk just doesn´t taste at all like mommy´s, does it? It is no easy task to raise wild bunnies, but we hope for the best. They are in the best hands with Jeannie as this isn´t the first time she has to raise baby cottontails. It is a joy to see them grow and thrive, but on the other hand it is always heartbreaking to find a safe spot to release them and to watch them hop away into an insecure future.
